This research, conducted by YouGov for Stonewall, examines the expectations and lived experiences of Britain’s 3.7 million gay people. For all the progress that has been made, they continue to face disadvantages in many walks of life; from education and healthcare, to playing sport or reporting a crime. Many lesbian, gay and bisexual people also expect to be discriminated against if they stand for political office, want to foster a child or consider becoming a magistrate or a school governor. This evidence presents clear challenges to many organisations across both the public and private sectors. Gay people may need to be treated differently, for example, in order to have equal access to public or commercial services. Employers and schools may have to think differently about how to stop bullying of employees and pupils.
